Madison – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement today after learning Wisconsin State Patrol Trooper Anthony J. Borostowski of Tomah died in the line of duty after his patrol car struck a tree on Interstate 90/94.
“Our hearts are heavy today as we mourn the loss of Anthony Borostowski who passed away early this morning in the line of duty. Anthony was an outstanding trooper and staff sergeant in the Wisconsin National Guard.
